Here is your opportunity to spend two hours in productive discussion with other lab CIOs and experts in lab informatics. Each year, this Lab CIO Roundtable is a popular event because it allows effective peer-to-peer exchange in a productive and noncompetitive way. At a time when effective use of information technology is becoming a critical success factor for all clinical labs and pathology groups, it becomes imperative for lab informatics experts to stay informed with the information needed to keep their lab organization at the leading edge of clinical services and financial sustainability. This roundtable will provide essential information in support of those goals.
Of the two, lateral dynamics has proven to be the more complicated, requiring three-dimensional , multibody dynamic analysis with at least two generalized coordinates to analyze. At a minimum, two coupled, second-order differential equations are required to capture the principal motions.  Exact solutions are not possible, and numerical methods must be used instead.  Competing theories of how bikes balance can still be found in print and online. On the other hand, as shown in later sections, much longitudinal dynamic analysis can be accomplished simply with planar kinetics and just one coordinate.
